Major problems you've had:
1)airbag replaced
2)ball joints replaced
3)cracked rim (replaced)
4)engine mounts replaced
5) another transmission put in just recently at 87,878 miles (used transmission put in)
the airbag, engine mounts nd transmission all replaced in a span of 3 weeks...it cost me quite a lot in a short time

i only had the car now for about 2 years

has anyone else has problem with there transmission with low miles (under 100,000 miles)

My 2002 Millenia "P" just hit 160,000 miles a few weeks back.

No real major issues to speak of. I did have to replace the EGR valve last summer and the right half-shaft this spring, but that's been about all since the warranty expired.

I just had my wheels with Michelin tires rotated and balanced today. It's still easy to hit 80 MPH and have a smooth ride with this car.

I have a 2002 Millenia S that I have owned since 0 miles

Now it reads 215000 miles ans I have never had the engine rebuilt. Soon I will do this as it leaks oil pretty bad...

I decided to continue fixing it instead ot replacing the vehicle, it has been a great car!

my gf has a 95 2.5 with 182k, and i work on it pretty often. it has a ton of problems, and i pretty much just try to spend as little money as possible on it whilst keeping it running. junk yards are my friend. so far ive replaced two door sensors and the thermostat display, resealed the valve covers and replaced various service parts in the process. i dont know if the timing belt or pump has ever been changed, and i dont really have the motivation to pay for it or do it myself at the moment. its also been wrecked once apparently, but the damage looks relatively minimal. right now the main problems im having is the fuel gauge being stuck, leaking oil from somewhere between the valve covers and oil pan (too much trouble to fix), and recurring misfiring that i cant seem to get rid of. ive replaced the spark plugs and wires, and that hasnt seemed to take care of it so far.

Regarding the misfire you might want to replace the rotor and cap. Or at least clean the terminals in the cap. I had a bit of an occasional stumble at idle a while ago. I re-gapped the plugs and cleaned the cap terminals resulting in a nice smooth idle. Mine is a 95 2.5 with 184,000. Currently running, I suspect, much like it did the day it shipped out of Hiroshima.

i regapped the plugs also and applied dielectric grease to all the contact points because that was the cheapest option right now. i probably should clean the cap terminals as well. if that doesnt work, ill look into replacing the rotor and cap.

Problems I've had: right now is the supercharger, and cracked intake tube

how long have you had your Millenia: since feb, 4th, 2011. Ive owned a 1996 Millenia L as well til someone backed into my car and the stupid insurance declared it totalled. smashed headlights, bent hood, grille and thats it... ac worked, radiator still good... and they wouldnt fix it. go figure.
